I'm Dalton Runberg, a digital media specialist in the San Francisco Bay Area with experience in digital marketing, content management, graphic design, and writing. Most recently I worked as online content manager for iHeartRadio San Francisco. I’m currently looking for new opportunities in the digital marketing or design fields.
In my spare time I'm a competitive Dance Dance Revolution player and serve as co-host and producer for a bi-weekly podcast called The Arrow Panel about the game and its community. I also help stream casual sessions and tournaments to grow interest and encourage more people to play and compete.
BACKGROUND & EDUCATION
I grew up in Fresno, California before making my move north to the Bay Area. I began to teach myself Photoshop in middle school as a way to create my own background art for custom Dance Dance Revolution step files. This passion lead me to enroll in the Center for Advance Research and Technology's multimedia lab in high school to prepare myself for a career in digital arts. I then attended Fresno State, where I graduated magna cum laude with a bachelor's degree in Mass Communication & Journalism, specializing in digital media. During my time there, I served as webmaster and then editor-in-chief for the campus' student-run newspaper, The Collegian, where my team and I received numerous awards for writing and design.
Following college, I took a job as an online content & promotions coordinator at iHeartMedia Fresno and freelanced as a graphic designer for Central Valley Luxury Magazine (CVLUX). After more than a year at iHeartMedia in Fresno, I took a chance at a promotion that would lead me to move to the beautiful city of San Francisco, where I have enjoyed living ever since.
